Draft Scout Greg Romeus News
06/25/12 - DE Greg Romeus cleared waivers and was placed on the Saints' reserve/injured list.
06/25/12 - DE Greg Romeus was waived/injured by the Saints Friday. Romeus was the one of the club's two seventh-round draft picks in 2011. After missing his rookie season while rehabbing from a right knee injury suffered as a college senior at Pittsburgh, he suffered a torn left ACL and MCL in the this offseason's OTA's, which required surgery.
If he clears waivers, Romeus will revert to the team's reserve/injured list.
06/14/12 - DE Greg Romeus tore the ACL in his left knee.
Vitt said Romeus' left knee gave out without contact while running downfield. A seventh-round draft pick in 2011, Romeus missed his entire rookie season while rehabbing from a torn ACL in his right knee, which he suffered during his senior season at Pitt.
The 6-5, 267-pound Romeus had a solid spring and was expected to be in the mix for a roster spot as an outside pass rusher in the scheme run by new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
Vitt said the loss of Romeus, who was expected to be a high draft pick until he tore his ACL late in his senior season, was the team's biggest setback of the spring.
"This kid has really worked hard," he said. "This kid has put in the time, the effort, and he's got to go through the whole (rehab) process again. But we're going to be there for him and support him."
